Sing If You Can is a British game show broadcast on ITV. It features celebrities attempting to sing in front of a live studio audience whilst various attempts are made to disrupt their performances. It is presented by Keith Lemon and Stacey Solomon, though originally Vernon Kay was scheduled to host, but he felt that it would be better hosted by a comedian.[1][2]

Six celebrities are divided into two teams, each with a captain. After the celebrity has performed, a three-person judging panel views their thoughts. After all six celebrities have performed, the audience vote to decide which team wins. The losing team captain is dropped into a tank of water, and the winning team then perform a final song on a spinning stage. The amount of money to be donated to charity increases as the stage spins, and the longer the celebrities stay on the stage, the more money they win. The show raised money for the Teenage Cancer Trust.
